Subject: File No. 4-637

I am deeply concerned about the influence of corporate money on our electoral process.

I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending. MOST IMPORTANT: Cleanse the problem by making it illegal for any private persons or group to give money to any political candidate's campaign. All should be publicly funded.
